– Rene Archner, Culinary Educator and Chef
I am writing to thank you for the guidance you gave me recently.
We only had two sessions together but they have already proved really helpful. One at my house (you finding out about my current eating preferences/habits and then looking through my cupboards and fridge) and the other at the Supermarket/Bin Inn where you educated me where due on lots of the foods that I was buying and helped me stock up my cupboards for the recipes (courtesy of Nourishfull) I was about to make.
I liked that you tailored everything around me, my lifestyle and what I wanted. You were very respectful and asked questions with care and diplomacy. Talking to others about how they currently eat and prepare food, what they feel about food is a personal thing, you are entering into personal boundaries. I found your manner to be friendly and helpful, more of a friend helping than a consultant selling. It is easy to see that food and nourishing eating is in your blood. Setting up your business Nourishfull will only be a great service to those who want pointers in a healthier/sugar free direction.
Before we worked together I had felt as if there was a block of some sort stopping me from relaxing and enjoying cooking and food preparation, I sometimes felt a pressure or resistance to cooking. Well, since you came along, I feel more relaxed about trying new things out – I have already made I have made hummus; home-made baked beans; refried beans; hotpot; muesli, raw energy fruit/nut/seed balls.
I think your rates are fair and reasonable, given what you offer (education; recipes; coaching; knowledge) and the follow up service as required. it was an affordable exercise that I am happy to recommend.
Working with you allowed me to realise that I am already a good cook and know a lot of good basics, I think you have just helped me harness that with more of a confidence. It is great to know that you are just an email away with your follow up help.
I would recommend you to anyone out there who wants to learn more about enjoying their time in the kitchen. You are bringing a good local service to busy people who know they want to change somethings, but just don’t quite know how and need a little guidance to help them step over the mark. I’m over the mark thank you Maddy!
You can put people in contact with me if they want to speak to a happy client.

” I appreciated all the care that you took in choosing recipes that will be very user friendly, economical and are definitely things that I will make and pass on to my daughter as healthy things that are easy to prepare and don’t have to cost a lot as they use things we already have in our pantry’s’. I like that you use tinned beans and tomatoes as they are easy, readily available practical and real.” – Zoe B. Nelson
